Wheely Good Coffee


Look Mum No Hands is a buzzing bicycle workshop and coffee shop combined.

If you’re a cyclist in need of parts, help or inspiration, get yourself over to Clerkenwell.  If you like good coffee and cakes (and some mean sandwiches too), the same applies.

The Square Mile coffee is excellent and the cakes take some beating, with enough choice to please all tastes.  On my visit, there was Pumpkin cake (scrummy), Lemon polenta cake, Gingerbread, Pumpkin and coconut loaf and at least two varieties of chocolate cake.

It is not the place for a quiet drink in a cosy armchair; this is a buzzing, vibrant coffee shop with a busy bicycle workshop in the corner.  Bikes are not compulsory; I went sans vélo and service was welcoming, helpful and friendly. Apparently, this is the place to come for a party atmosphere during the Tour de France. There’s also a welcoming courtyard outside, with a coffee cart weather permitting.

Look Mum No Hands, 49 Old Street, London EC1V 9HX (exit no. 7 from Old Street station)

  1. I just got back from a combo cafe/laundromat in Oslo and I thought that was a fantastic idea. As a bycycle commuter I love the idea of combining bikes and coffee!!
